Simpsons Terminator spoof

Simpsons' Terminator spoof

Fri 19 Mar 2004 | 10h20 GMT+1

Like some of us will already know, the TV series The Simpsons have had some spoofs on the Terminator saga during the seasons. We are still looking for a complete list with all the Terminator spoofs, but in the mean time, we found this nice list with examples.

Not on the list are other Terminator references:

"During Abe Lincolns assassination he is first making a speak then turning around and saying "Oh no its John Wikes Booth" John Wikes Booth comes in with a leather jacket, leather boots, two big guns, and sunglasses. He says "Hasta la vista Abby" before pelting him with gunfire."

"Homer tries to pitch a film idea to Ron Howard, "The Terminiser - An Erotic Thriller" about a killer robot driving instructor who goes back in time for some reason."
